KYM Pony General VI: Return of the Poni

For FIM to be affected I think they would have to be completely purchased by Disney. From the looks of it, it may just be Disney buying the sections dedicated to now Disney properties (Star Wars, Marvel, etc.) Unless Hasbro is really dumb enough to sell off MLP during these exchanges, I think that in-house themes would be fine. However, it is still possible that Disney purchases Hasbro outright, which I don’t see working out well, as all in-house themes would be affected.

@Disney
The video of the Gravity Falls theme that Equestria Daily linked to is “blocked under copyright in my country.”

If Disney does manage to get their hands on MLP… this does not bode well.

@Equestrian Military
While they don’t have much in the way of a military now (besides the royal guards), I think that they probably did sometime in the past. Remember, there is that picture of an officer of some kind on “Mystery on the Friendship Express,” and he obviously wasn’t a mere guard. Perhaps there was some sort of conflict in the past that led to the peaceful present?

Of course Disney will buy Hasbro. They already own Marvel and Star Wars. It’s only a matter of time before Disney buys everything. It’s one of the reasons humanity became extinct in the first place.

Well, in the episode with Twilight and here future self, Rainbow Dash asks that what if there was another foreboding “Great Pony War” in the midst.
So war is canon, goodbye.

I am pretty sure that Disney would knock at the door of their huge legal department and kick of copyright infringement lawsuits everywhere as soon as they get their hands on MLP.

Basically the outcome would be devastating…

  • Watching Episodes on YouTube: Gone
  • Pony related Games: Gone
  • Fan made episodes: Would Disney give the permission? I don’t think so…
  • Remixes, PMVs, MLP YTP: Gone, most likely
  • And not to forget: I can’t watch the Grafity Falls Intro as well: Blocked due to copyright issues

Seriously we can be quite thankful that Hasbro is so relaxed and doesn’t interfere everywhere. I am sure this has helped the fandom greatly. Perhaps it wouldn’t even exist in the first place, if all episodes would get taken down immediately. I mean, I would have never watched an episode, if it involved more than clicking on an embbeded YouTube video.

So I really hope that these rumors don’t come true. I know, I have painted quite a dark future, but this is not that unlikely.

Yeah, I like Disney and all that, but I’m hoping that this rumor remains just that, or if they do, they focus on the Star Wars stuff due to that.

Ah yes, I forgot all about that. Interesting…

Back to Disney now. Although I agree that it would be bad if they took over, it certainly would not mean the collapse of the brony fandom. I mean, it is true that many things could no longer be done (as Whitishcollar pointed out), but we would somehow manage to adapt.

I mean, Gravity Falls has a growing fanbase, and it’s Disney. True there are no music videos or games or whatnot, but still… The online presence of ponies would not simply vanish. Of course it is still preferable for Hasbro to stick around. I don’t know how things would be if they weren’t as understanding and accepting as they are.

But hey, it’s all still a rumour. If I remember correctly, Disney tried to buy out Hasbro once before too, and that didn’t work.

@Stargazer

False, the article did mention MLP at the very end as a potential affected IP. See the last paragraph.

Wait? What?

So yeah, this means Disney would also own My Little Pony, and there would be plenty of cross-over material there, too.

Oh there…damn how did I miss that? Okay so Disney would acquire MLP in the process of buying up all the rights to SW merch, even if it’s not their primary interest.

Back to the matter at hand and assuming the scenario where Disney owns MLP:

Disney can’t hamper the Brony fandom any more than it could hamper the Star Wars fandom. We shouldn’t get too paranoid over their legal team trying to stomp us into the ground. Besides, if they know anything about Bronies and care as much about money as they do, then it’s in their best interest to cater to us.

Blocked youtube video’s of official episodes is a very serious problem however. They will likely do that even if they don’t care as much about MLP as their other IP’s. We’d have to find a way around that

I still don’t expect the episodes themselves to be largely affected, I would be surprised if Disney took it out of the hands of Studio B (why would they need to?). And if it is affected, would they do any worse than Gravity Falls (which isn’t terrible at all, lots of Bronies watch that too)? The worst I can imagine is the show being moved to the Disney channel


And of course, please remember people that this is all unconfirmed rumors at this point.

For all we know, Hasbro could tell disney to go to hell so they can hoard all the Star Wars toy sales for themselves.

@Blue Screen (of death), I think were’re also afraid that FIM will end up like The Spectacular Spider-Man series.
It was in production before Disney purchased Marvel. Stu from Marvel age of animation review of the series said that “The Spectacular Spider-Man stands as Marvel’s finest animated effort-” and was awarded the best animated series in both 2008 and 2009. However, despite this, Disney decided to opt for making the Ultimate Spider-Man series instead of trying to continue Spectacular. Although some people like the Ultimate Spider-Man series (I watched a few episodes and felt it was okay), it is considered significantly inferior by most critics to Spectacular. Many of us fear that if Disney purchases the IP for MLP, something like this could happen.

Settle down, settle down

This is just a rumor that we don’t even know it’s true. Disney has had a healthy partnership with Hasbro for years. Heck, some Hasbro products are characters in Toy Story for goodness sakes.

So just settle down. We don’t know and just have to wait. Let’s not waste our brain cells on speculation.

What does IP mean?

@Disney buying Hasbro

Hasbro should let the people who watch their shows have a say in the contract if they plan on selling to Disney (which I think highly unlikely, considering that Hasbro has given rights for brand name toys to be put into series on other channels [ex: Hot Wheels on Cartoon Network]), but I mean COME ON. Why would Hasbro sell themselves to Disney? They’ve been around a long time and they haven’t given up on hope. And they’ve had a great partnership with Disney for a long time, one partner does not simply start commanding the other at random.

@Lone K

IP = Intellectual Property. Not to be confused with Internet Protocol

And no, Hasbro should not talk to their fanbase on matters that determine the fate of their business. That’s a decision that should be left to the executives with years of experience in business management. What do we know about maintaining a multimillion dollar corporation?

I will say that a revision of Hasbro’s licensing agreement with Disney regarding Star Wars (and possibly Marvel) is more likely than Disney buying Hasbro. I’m sorry if I seemed too worried on complete speculation at this point. I agree with Blue Scree of Death

I’m pretty sure when most people with tech knowledge use the phrase “Internet protocol”, they don’t usually abbreviate it to IP, so I doubt confusion happens often. Besides, most of the time, we tend to think of specific internet protocol snipets… such as “http” or whatever. And I’m even more sure that “Internet Protocol” is rarely mentioned outside a conversation on using the internet.

(That was longer than necessary, wasn’t it?)

Anyways. The thing with letting a company decide its own fate is that frequently, they DON’T know what they are doing. Not terribly frequently, but it happens enough that one begins to wonder why people are still hiring Micheal Bay.

However, on the other side of the coin, the audience doesn’t know what to do either. What we may think the answer to one problem is might be a different thing to what would be the logical thing to do if you actually have decent knowledge of the problem.

As a relevant example, we probably think the solution that would keep MLP alive is for Hasbro to not be bought by Disney at all. However it could be the case that for legal reasons it could be less of a liability for them to have sections of their company related to Disney’s existing products (Star Wars and what not) moved to one of Disney’s studios through some form of deal, and Hasbro be contracted on to work on them from the outside. Or possibly some other scenario I haven’t thought of.

Still, whatever the case, the problem we see, and the solution are two very different matters.

We can see the problems easily enough, but don’t know the solutions well enough to advise.

The companies know how to make a solution, but find it hard to locate a problem without feedback.

So there is an inherent need to communicate; on some level at least.

(This was all more or less told to me in a games design course, so take with a grain of salt. And I may be remembering this wrong, but I think the unit was literally called “Games Design 101”.)

Disney is not stupid. You do not get to be Disney by messing up. What My Little Pony has going for it is incredible, and the growth is certainly fostered by Hasbro’s relaxed approach to copyright protection. I know that if the episodes could not have been conveniently found on YouTube, I’dve never watched them in the first place. Even if Disney did buy My Little Pony, and I haven’t been on EQD or any pony news sites in a while so I don’t know what the basis to these rumors is, they’ll be smart enough to keep things going as they are. They might merchandise a bit more, and we’d be pretty much certain to see a pony movie at some point, but I’d imagine everything on YouTube would stay. Maybe they’ll take a lesson for this. I’d like to see shows run like MLP become the norm.


55% in support of I-502. I love election night.


Edit @BSoD, below

I think we already sorted out who leans where, but I never got a chance to add my two cents.

Applejack: Republican – Small business owner, favors economy freer of government regulation.
Fluttershy: Republican – Doesn’t want government interfering in her life and telling her what to do. The government is big and really, really scary.
Pinkie Pie: Communist – Equal distribution of sugar, communist parties.
Rainbow Dash: Democrat – Pretty much just wants gay marriage legalized, and way overestimates the power of the presidency to do so.
Rarity: Democrat – Element of Generosity says spread the wealth, provide healthcare for all.
Twilight Sparkle: Libertarian – She put a lot of thought into it, and realized she favors social liberalism but fiscal conservatism.

@ Real Politics and Ponies.

Really? there are still people who cares who wins? At least to any “Loyal” Degree?

Lets break down my experience with politics, which is Australian based so may be different to you guys.

We have two major parties.

-Labor Party
-Liberal Party

Vote labor and you will likely still have a job by the end of the year, but you will struggle financially. You’re also likely to end up with a better chance of flat out surviving, and will be supported by hundreds of government projects. The government will be broke though by the time the next election comes round.

Vote liberal… And jack all will happen. They just horde up the money and say “Do whatever capitalism tells you to!” and the economy booms, but a mild risk of being fired is incurred; but if you don’t get fired, you’re rolling in money. Little money if any is given to anything that isn’t necessary.

So which do you vote for?

As an acquaintance said once: “Depends what year it is.”

…Then again, America is weird. I’ll just sit back until it decides to be sane.

As for which ponies vote which way…

I get the feeling that ponies would probably just vote for whichever member is least likely to do something… incredibly stupid that might doom the entire country.

So probably less likely to be Romney, as not even he knows what he’s doing. Its like George Bush all over again.

Hey, guys, I’m not going to force you to stop talking about politics, but I’d rather we keep it out of this board. Reading my Facebook feed, filled with fellow eighteen-year-olds, but with one crucial difference – they really know absolutely nothing about politics and everyone’s policies even thought they think they do – is already enough to piss me off. If we keep talking politics, I’m probably going to have to exile myself from here until Saturday, when we definitely talk ponies, just to keep my sanity. I’d rather not do that. Yes, I realize most of you probably have a better idea, but still, talking politics with anyone, of any affiliation, sets my teeth on edge right now, no matter how mature and educated they are about it.

… Taking advice from Twilitlord, Here’s something sompletely different!

I’m working on a… Overly complex Shipping Chart-thingy. And the basic idea is that each possible romance option is listed along with WHY they might be good together using a Chess piece of a certain color to mark the chart.

The Six relationship types (So far) go:
-Knight (Rivalry)
-Pawn (Companionship)
-Queen (Encouragement)
-King (Leadership)
-Bishop (Educative)
-Rook (Protective)

Breaking it down further is the Black/White Passive/Active Divide: Where White is Active, and fulfills the main function of the relationship; and Black is Passive, being content to enjoy what the other gives and showing their appreciation for the role the white plays, and in some cases where the White is doing their role just cause they enjoy it, the black is receptive to that need.

So from there one can start analysis.

Dash:
White Knight-> Applejack
Black Bishop-> Twilight
White Rook-> Fluttershy
Black Pawn-> Pinkie Pie

Twilight:
Black Bishop-> Celestia
White Bishop-> Dash
Black Rook-> Applejack
Black Knight-> Trixie

…And so on…

Shipping has now entered the 21st century.

P.S. This is the simple version.

I find it interesting that I can now think of Celestia (A near white Princess) as having White Queen romantic feelings for Luna (Being a dark princess) who may have Black Queen romantic feelings for Celestia.

Not that I actually bothered voting anyway.

I almost wish I had now though, just so I could vote for a good ruler.

@Disney
Most of it has been said already, but I agree with most people saying that I hope this doesn’t happen.
While we would likely get more accurate and prolific official toys and things, there would likely be a much stricter crackdown on the fan content that has really been a driving force in bronydom.
No more Youtube episodes, no more Livestreams, no more plushies, etc, etc.
We’ll just have to wait and see.

My advice… Don’t even bother trying to explain to them.

Instead, revel in the weirdness until the only thing they can say is “but that’s not normal”.

And at that point you can smile and say that you have genuinely given up on trying to be normal, and don’t want society to dictate the terms of your existence.

It worked for me. My parents were criticizing me all the time in high school for being weird, and they gave up the moment I treated it like a compliment.

Also, it helps that I look like an anime character that just got back from fighting Godzilla; and that even before MLP, my Images Folder has only ever contained about 5 humans.

…if it’s a matter of them thinking it’s immature to watch a children’s show (as opposed to just unusual). Then one can always claim that it takes way more effort to comply to societies’ idea of “Mature” (or even “Manly” in some cases) than it does to be really mature and just do what feels natural, and doing what feels natural without worrying about what others think is the proof of real maturity.

But if it ever becomes emotional. Just remember the golden dagger to any pointless argument…to ask them the most basic question…

“Why do you care about this?”

And whatever their reply you answer with this:

“I don’t care about that.”

-in fact, use that at the first signs of resistance.

Glorious news! Hasbro reportedly isn’t interested in having any more relations with Disney than they already have!

Stock in the Pawtucket-based toymaker (HAS:Nasdaq) spiked 6.8 percent to $38.66 at the opening bell amid speculation that Disney (DIS:NYSE) was preparing a multi-billion dollar bid for Hasbro.

Hasbro declined comment, citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro’s advisors told him there’s “absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form” involving Hasbro or Disney.
Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn’t make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney’s competitors.

That’s a relief to some of us no doubt.

Is it just me? Or is MLP getting real dark real quick?

It starts with the relatively harmless Nighmare moon. No big, fix the problem… when you feel like it I guess. Just don’t take longer than a week.

Then there’s Discord. And he’s kinda harmless to life and limb, but he’s going to tear reality appart, and drive every being away from each other. Which is sad.

…And then we have shapeshifting beings that play wih one’s feelings, guilt you, lock you under ground, tie you up in horror sacks of goo, eat your soul, pretend to be your loved ones, and brainwash you.

And now… For spoilers.

King Somber straight up looks like he just murdered Shining Armour in one spoilery clip, that may be taken out of context. He’s confirmed to have enslaved an entire kingdom, and he’s a being of pure malevolence in shadow form. He’s somehow managed to wipe an entire race’s memories, stole their joy, and straight up seems to be trying to overtake Equestria, whole shadowlord style…

And it seems that Twilight could be banished from ponyville by a certain magician she humiliated a while ago.

Equestria is getting really dark now.

…and there seem to be hints that the semi-negative continuity isn’t going to last forever.

This is pony thread. [Elections are] Pointless to discuss here.

This isn’t just a pony thread. This is KYM Pony General. We are well known for posting about everything except ponies including drugs, politics, religion, warfare, Gravity Falls, etc. It’s been like that from the beginning
